Who are some of your favorite authors. My faves are growing all the time. Every time I check out a book by a different author, and I like the book I end up getting all the author's other books from the library. Does anyone else do this? Some of my faves are Janet Evonivich, Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown, Iras Johansen, Linda Howard, Karin Slaughter, and Tami Hoag.

Well I read a lot so I have several favorite authors. I read all sorts of books too so that makes it even more interesting. Some of my favorites are: Piers Anthony, Nora Roberts, Stephen King, Christopher Pike, Kathleen Woodiwiss, Dan Brown, Elizabeth Moon, and Ann Rice. I know there are more but those are the ones that come right to mind and I'd recommend to others.

I don't have a specific favorite author because I the books I read tend to autobiograhies and history-based stuff rather than books specific to one author or another. But I LOVE English Victorian Age poets and German poets. Tennyson is probably my favorite of all time.

My favourite authors are Gabriel Garcia Marquez (he wrote One Hundred Years of Solitude) and Irvine Welsh (who's best known for writing Trainspotting). In both cases I don't think their best-known book is their best-written, but I'm glad to see both of them get the recognition they deserve! One thing I love about Marquez is that if you read his fiction works and his autobiography, it's really cool to see which events in his novels are actually inspired by his own life. He writes magical realism, so sometimes it's really surprising to see which events actually happened!
